Inspiration – Clara Barton

The woman brought the Red Cross to the United States. Is that a big deal? Yes. When she did it, she was 56 years young. Talk about changing careers during midlife. It is very inspiring to see a woman change careers in her 50’s, specially in 1881.

If you have a passion that is pushing you towards something completely different, let Clara Barton inspire you to try something new. She was a teacher. She helped as a supplies specialist for hospitals during the war. She ran a nonprofit in later years. You have to love a woman who loves a challenge.

There is another reason why Clara Barton inspires. You see, it was her own personal health challenges that drove her to find out what the International Red Cross was. A challenge help her see her passion.
